Description of canyoning lake Bled trip

This day trip will give you a taste of Slovenia’s Alpine splendour by visiting its most stunning glacial lakes. You will get a chance to swim in this pristine environment, hike up to a mysterious waterfall, and feel the rush of canyoning in one of the gorges located nearby.   

The wider Bohinj area isn’t only one of the most beautiful places to visit in Slovenia, thanks to its diverse landscape, it also offers an array of fantastic activities. The most obvious and refreshing one is, of course, going for a swim in the cool waters of Lake Bohinj itself. But why not make a detour first and visit a surreally gorgeous gorge like Grmečica or Jereka for some canyoning. A 30-minute hike will take you to the top of the gorge where the fun begins. Fully equipped and in the company of a professional guide, you will descend into its depths. Climbing down waterfalls, leaping from rocky edges into emerald pools and sliding down natural toboggans will surely get your adrenaline pumping. Then it’s time to visit the tranquil, fairy tale environment of Lake Bohinj. Having a dip in this glacial wonder is a very refreshing experience that should be followed by a pleasant walk through the woods up to the famous Savica waterfall. On the way back, a quick stop in Bled to enjoy the view of its famous lake and castle is obligatory.

What a place! We loved Vintgar gorge and we were lucky our guide took us there in the morning to beat the crowds. We skipped the pletna boat and went for a walk on our own, the path around the lake has great views everywhere!
